Had a great late lunch yesterday (Oct. 12, 2014). The food was great, the waitress was great, the service was outstanding. Everything was great except the most important position...the hostess. You could tell she didn't want to be there or she was having a bad day. Not polite at all, never smiled, never said welcome, very cold.

I have eaten and drank at this wonderful places many times since it opened here in San Marcos. The food, service and quality is exceptional. Drinks are well made, reasonable and the bar area is a pleasing place to defeat the heat here in South Texas. All the dishes on the menu are great. Fajitas for two is overwhelming and... More

I think I'm being fair when I say -no matter what-at 3 p.m. on Sunday afternoon you should be able to plate a table, and get all the orders on the table within a reasonable amount of time. No it didn't happen. The food was okay, the guacamole like dip was good, the chips were good but I still think... More

Visited for first time on 2014-08-17 at 1100. Have enjoyed other locations. Tortillas were terrible being oily and undercooked. Refried beans with fajitas were burned. Had to ask server multiple times for items ordered. Area was so crowded that waiter had to pass plates the length of the table. Room was noisy.

I've been visiting Mamacita's for about 20 years, starting with the Kerrville location. The San Marcos location is always a great place to visit. The food is great and the atmosphere is wonderful. I think the manager has been the same one since they opened in San Marcos. The wait staff is always first rate.

After spending the day at the outket stores, I checked trip advisor for a good Mexican food place and Mamacitas had mostly very good reviews. My wife and I ate there and were not disappointed. The salsa and green dip sauce were excellent. Queso was very good. The tacos and enchiladas were also tasty. The atmosphere was the best. The... More
